CBI is Pleased to Announce That As Of June 1, We Are A MillerKnoll Certified Dealer

CBI is pleased to announce that as of June 1, 2022, we are a MillerKnoll Certified Dealer.

Last year, Herman Miller and Knoll announced a $1.8 billion merger making them the largest furniture manufacturing company in the commercial furniture industry. CBI is thrilled to support this partnership by introducing our clients to a new, dynamic collective of brands through a single source that can be leveraged to support workplace and business objectives.  

Last month, select CBI Associates attended a Dealer Activation Training in Chicago and experienced firsthand the power and strength of MillerKnoll. Both companies are organizations with rich histories and a shared commitment to design, innovation, operational excellence, sustainability and social good. By becoming one, MillerKnoll benefits from increased reach and the ability to better serve customers across the contract furnishings sector while meeting the highest level of manufacturing excellence, customer sales and service, and user experience. As a result of the partnership, CBI and our Associates are also able to provide these benefits to our clients.

Charlis Brock, Chief Operating Officer of CBI says, “The leaders who attended MillerKnoll’s Dealer Activation Training were selected so they could return to our markets and assist in training all our Associates on the enhancements to our product line and implementing ideas for leveraging the MillerKnoll brand in our clients’ workplaces. These leaders came back passionate and ready to knowledge-share with their peers, and we are excited to keep up the momentum heading into the summer.”

CBI’s Founder, Chairman & CEO David Longo was recently tapped to sit on the brand’s newly formed MillerKnoll Dealer Partner Advisory Council (DPAC), a group of 11 legacy dealers from Herman Miller and a group of 11 legacy dealers from Knoll. The group spent three days meeting with MillerKnoll Leadership to set dealer strategy, discuss product integration and determine best practices for thriving together as a new network of dealers. 

Longo says, “My experience with the MillerKnoll leadership team has been outstanding. They demonstrated that they are genuine and committed to our mutual success, including supporting us with our growth objectives and serving our clients in exemplary ways. MillerKnoll has made a major commitment to CBI and we to them, and we are excited to introduce and reintroduce their products to our clients. This new partnership offers only new and exciting opportunities for CBI, our clients, partners and those with whom we do business.” 

Throughout the next few months CBI will invite clients into their Learning Centers to learn more about MillerKnoll and the new products available to them. We encourage clients or partners with questions or who’d like to receive more information to reach out to the CBI location in your market. We look forward to continuing to serve as your premier workplaces solutions partner and bringing you the most innovative products available.
